Normal Is Getting Closer!

It’s been a very green, very damp Spring in our little corner of Texas so far. No wonder so many people are having acute allergy symptoms! I’m back on another course of antibiotics and a ninety day course of Rx allergy meds to get this under control.

It’s been around 70°, humid and windy here. Brad made a trip to town earlier to get my prescriptions and bring us some lunch. I made a trip of my own later to drop off the income tax to be filed by the CPA and pick up some groceries at Walmart. I’ve been home about an hour. Everything is put away, the trash is out and ready for pickup in the morning. We are in for the evening with nothing else that needs to be done besides decide what to eat for dinner.

Tomorrow is laundry catch-up day. I’ve got a set of sheets, the extra ones that go on the queen size bed, a load of towels and a load of whites. Then I’m done with that.

Today is the first day I’ve had on clothes, other than a nightgown, in weeks. And shoes and socks! My bra and my denim slacks are loose since the last time I wore them. Here’s hoping I can keep up my momentum and continue to drop the weight I need to get rid of in a reasonable length of time.

We both tend to run out of steam fairly quickly but we’re able to get done what needs doing and get plenty of rest for the time being. We are blessed to be able to stay home and take care of ourselves.

Hope your Tuesday evening is a blessed one.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
